Additional Notes

Complaint: I met with **** ** ***** of AMA to invest $10000 on a six month term and was to get a guaranteed 3.75% rate. I wrote them a check and they deposited it in the Bank of the Internet, at approximately a little over 1%. I was told by Mr. ** ***** that AMA would mail me a check for $135 to get my rate up to the advertised 3.75%. He said it would take ten days. I called repeatedly after two weeks had elapsed and each time was told that a check would be sent right away. It has now been one month and I have not received the guaranteed payment.

Desired Settlement: I would simply like the $135 check so that AMA meets there advertised rate.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/05/08) */ I do not show a ******** ****** as a client. I do show a ***** *******. Our records indicate that we mailed ***** ******* a check for 137.50 on May 4th.
